Edited by Jerry Rivers, Reema, Lynn, Joely and 1 other

Motor vehicle insurance is essential to protect not only one of the most important possessions in your life, but the most important possession, and that of others who are in your vehicle: Your very lives. In this day and age, with the increase in traffic especially in North America, motor insurance is even more important. With higher traffic, the probability of an accident also increases hence the need for motor insurance. In many states in the United States, motor insurance is mandatory. Finding the best online motor insurance quote means finding what is best for you personally.

Your personal circumstances and needs differ significantly from your next door neighbor's. A person with health problems, who smokes, or who has had recent traffic violations, a DUI, etc., will more than likely need to shop around much more than a person who is healthy and with a clean driving record. Finding the best insurance quote means considering all the factors of your situation and deciding what is best for you. Motor insurance pricing varies significantly from locale to locale, and vehicle to vehicle. For example, if you live in a small town and ride a motor scooter, your premium is extremely low. If you are in a large city, and drive a new Porsche, expect to pay a higher rate. If you are presently making payments on a vehicle, you will need to have full coverage insurance which is much higher than the simpler liability insurance. If your specific situation includes higher driving risks, more services will be needed, thus more coverage required, you will then pay a higher premium with any insurance company. If you are searching for the best online motor insurance quotes, two great sources are to get a referral or use an online auto insurance quote service. Both are described below to help you find the best online motor insurance quotes.

Find a referral if possible

Ask a friend, relative, or co-worker about any vehicle insurance company or insurance company search service online which they would recommend. You can also find a referral in reviews or testimonials of policy holders regarding certain auto insurance companies.

You may want any or all of these options, which will add to a quote if not provided:

  • Car rental coverage
  • Roadside coverage
  • Income loss coverage
  • Personal, passenger, and other driver coverage. This increases as coverage amount increases beyond liability insurance.
  • Injury/property damage

Here are the details that will be needed:

  • Auto or motorcycle make, model, year.
  • State drivers license number.
  • Social Security number - only provide when signing policy.
  • Driving record.
  • Any previous accident claims.
  • Distance to and from work each day.

When searching for insurance, always consider the reputation of the insurance company along with their quote. Find out how their system works if you are involved in a traffic accident. You want the agent to be professional, courteous and helpful in advising you, as well as processing your claim. He may even have additional information that was missed prior to signing the policy, such as any discount for which you may qualify.
